It is August ‘2012, and we have a raw perception of what the next generation iPhone, or the better known iPhone 5 would look like. Some of the changes which will be brought about in Apple’s iPhone 5 hint towards a smaller charging port, nano-SIM technology, and a 4-inch display. Apple is currently testing its iOS 6 which is at final stages before it could be released for public, and here we have something interesting for our readers, from our friends at 9To5Mag . The guys at 9To5Mag recently published their new findings on Apple’s upcoming iOS 6, which hints towards a longer display on Apple’s next generation iPhone. Here’s more, after the jump.

The news first came from our friends at 9To5Mag, confirming that they were able to scale iOS 6’s display which is compatible with a resolution of 640 x 1136 pixels, pointing towards a 3.95-inch display. Here’s more from 9To5Mag:

“Thanks to some tweaks to the iOS Simulator application that is included in the iOS development tools, we were able to run the simulator at the rumored next-generation iPhone display resolution of 640 x 1136. We did this running both the current public release of iOS 5.1 and the upcoming iOS 6.0. The iOS 5.1 simulator displayed the home screen with a stretched set of four rows of icons. On the other hand, iOS 6 displayed five complete rows — as our sources said Apple was testing for taller iPhone displays.

This proves that the upcoming release of iOS 6, which will obviously come pre-loaded on the new iPhone, is well-aware of taller iPhone displays. It scales perfectly to the taller resolution.”

Well, if the reports are true, we can take a step forward towards confirming a 4-inch display on Apple iPhone 5 which is scheduled for release anytime in between September-October ‘2012, as claimed by sources close to Apple. The device will come pre-loaded with iOS 6 which comes with a support for 4-inch displays as confirmed by 9To5Mag recently. Further, this larger display on iPhone 5 happily accommodates 5-row icons set on the device screen sporting a clutter free efficient display.


Apart from a larger display, Apple’s iPhone 5 will have a stronger processor, NFC technology and 4G/LTE compatible, as claimed by reports from major tech critics. Well, we are still keeping our lips sealed on this topic for a while before we get our hands on some more information. Until then, keep subscribed to our newsletter to be the first ones to know about Apple’s iPhone 5.
